Raising finance for Europe's small and medium-sized businesses

This guide provides practical information to SMEs across Europe on how to raise finance from a variety of sources. Available in several European languages, the guide will help many European entrepreneurs make educated choices about what type of funding their business needs. Loans provided by both banks and non-banks, including alternative forms such as invoice discounting, trade finance and leasing, and bond issuance for larger SMEs, as well as equity issuance, including IPOs, venture capital, private equity, P2P platforms and crowd funding, can all provide cash to existing and growing businesses. We believe that this is the first pan-European guide to SME finance. It includes an extensive directory of national and pan-European organisations and schemes which provide SME support.
